He also worked on the soundtrack for Roots (1977 miniseries). Long before any of that he had been known in his native country. He did not fully live the tradition of a wandering musicians because he lost his leg at age 16, but by the mid-1960s became popular on radio. He attained enough respect to do an arrangement for their national anthem. In 1991 he died of tuberculosis after several years of illness.
